K1 Petition: 1st NOA Question

 Share

Recommended Posts

I sent off my I-129F on 8/15 priority mail with certified mail receipt. According to the certified mail receipt, it arrived at VSC on 8/17 and my check for the $455 fee was processed on 8/19.

So, I am curious when and how do you receive the first NOA.....is it via US Mail or e-mail? I know everything is obviously there, but now I am just wondering how the NOA is officially sent? Mail or E-mail?

Thanks!

It does arrive via snail mail. If you use online banking, however, you can view your receipt number and begin tracking the case status on the USCIS website. The receipt number is printed in the endorsement area on the back of the check, so you can find it by viewing the check image on the bank's online banking website.

Congrats on starting your journey! :)

Improved USCIS Form G-325A (Biographic Information)

Form field input font changed to allow entry of dates in the specified format and to provide more space for addresses and employment history. This is the 6/12/09 version of the form; the current version is 8/8/11, but previous versions are accepted per the USCIS forms page.

Okay, thank you. I do use online banking, that's how I saw the check cleared, I will look at the back of the check and find the receipt number. That's good to know. Let the journey begin!

As a VSC filer, your receipt number will start with EAC followed by a string of ten digits. :thumbs:

Thanks, I see it beginning with the EAC, but of course its too difficult to decipher the numbers on the online copy of the check. The copy is not the best quality, so I guess I will have to be patient and wait for the snail mail.
